Federal Computer Week (FCW) is reporting that the Dept. of Veteran Affairs is now publishing online maps to better locate gravesites of veterans and dependents buried in national cemeteries. The current site is at: gravelocator.cem.va.gov.
Currently there are 3 million veterans and dependents in the national cemeteries database. This database will also include primate cemeteries and state veteran's cemeteries. According to FCW some 1,000 new records are added every day, and there are currently over 5 million records in the database already.
The VA is planning to provide kiosk access at national cemeteries to make on-site searches quicker and easier for visitors.
